Usually bad brushes in the alternator. They will make intermittent contact and cause the light to go on and off. I would replace the alternator.

Solenoid Replacement
  1. Remove the starter.
  2. Unscrew the two solenoid switch (magnetic switch) retaining screws.
  3. Remove the solenoid. In order to unhook the solenoid from the starter drive lever, lift it up at the same time that you are pulling it out of the starter housing.
  4. Installation is in the reverse order of removal. Make sure that the solenoid switch is properly engaged with the drive lever before tightening the mounting screws.

Brush Replacement
NON-REDUCTION GEAR TYPE

  1. Remove the starter.
  2. Remove the solenoid (magnetic switch).
  3. Unfasten the two end frame cap mounting bolts and remove the end frame cap.
  4. Remove the O-ring and lock plate from the armature shaft groove, then slide the shims off the shaft.
  5. Unfasten the two long housing screws (at the front of the starter) and carefully pull off the end plate.
  6. Using a screwdriver, separate the brushes from the brush holder.
  7. Slide the brush holder off of the armature shaft.
  8. Crush the old brushes off of the copper braid and file away any remaining solder.
  9. Fit the new brushes to the braid and spread the braid slightly.
Use a soldering iron of at least 250 watts.
  1. Using a light-grade solder, solder the brush to the braid. Grip the copper braid with flat pliers to prevent the solder from flowing down its length.
  2. File off any extra solder and then repeat the procedure for the remaining three brushes.
  3. Installation is in the reverse order of removal.

When installing the brush holder, make sure that the brushes line up properly.
REDUCTION GEAR TYPE
  1. Remove the starter and the solenoid.
  2. Remove the through-bolts and the rear cover. The rear cover can be pried off with a small prytool, but be careful not to damage the O-ring.
  3. Separate the starter housing, armature, and brush holder from the center housing. They can be removed as an assembly.
  4. Remove the positive side brush from its holder. The positive brush is insulated from the brush holder, and its lead wire is connected to the field coil.
  5. Carefully lift the negative brush from the commutator and remove it from the holder.
  6. Installation is in the reverse order of removal.

Starter Drive Replacement
NON-REDUCTION GEAR TYPE
  1. With the starter motor removed from the vehicle, separate the solenoid from the starter.

I have a 1999 3,8L ford mustang my tester indecates the alt is overcharging,but the batt light is coming on but it goes off! is there anything i can do to besides replace the alt?


Your alternator-mounted voltage regulator has failed. Luckily, your voltage regulator is
replaceable separately from the alternator (most voltage regulators are integral to the alternator,
and cannot be separately serviced).

Note: this works for 3.8L cobra alternators/voltage regulators only - in the 4.6L model, the
voltage regulator is an integral component of the alternator.

1999 Ford Mustang Cobra -3.8L engine

3.8L Engines

1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.

2. Remove 4 Torx® head screws holding the voltage regulator to the alternator rear housing. Remove the regulator, with the brush and terminal holder attached.

Fig. 1. The regulator and brush/terminal holder are mounted on the backside of the alternator

Fig. 2. The regulator and brush/terminal holder are secured by 4 Torx® head machine screws

Fig. 3. Hold the regulator while removing the screws to prevent the regulator from dropping out and damaging the brushes

archaeology_72.jpg



3. Hold the regulator in one hand and pry off the cap covering the A terminal screw head with a small prybar.

4. Remove 2 Torx® head screws retaining the regulator to the brush holder. Separate the regulator from the brush holder.



Fig. 4. Slide the regulator out-the brushes will move out of the holder

Fig. 5. The brush and terminal holder can be separated from the regulator once it is removed from the alternator

=========================================================
To install:

1. Install the brush holder on the regulator with 2 retaining screws. Tighten the screws to 25-35 inch lbs. (2.8-4.0 Nm).

2. Install the cap on the head of the A terminal screw.

3. Depress the brushes into the holder and hold the brushes in position by inserting a standard size paper clip, or equivalent tool, through both the location hole in the regulator and through the holes in the brushes.

Fig. 6. When installing the regulator, press the brushes back into the housing

archaeology_75.jpg


Fig. 7. Use a thin piece of soft material, like this plastic wire tie, to hold the brushes in position while replacing the regulator, or use a paper clip inserted in the hole

archaeology_76.jpg



4. Install the regulator/brush holder assembly and remove the paper clip. Install the attaching screws and tighten to 20-30 inch lbs. (2.3-3.4 Nm).

5. Connect the negative battery cable.

Charging system not working have already put in a brand new alternator and new battery


There is a fusible link in the connection between the alternator and the positive battery cable connector.

On the 1997 it is a 175 Amp Mega Fuse mounted on the outside of the high voltage fuse box located on the drivers's side in the engine compartment. After replacing the battery and the Alternator, it turned out to be a $4.99 fuse that was keeping the alternator current from reaching the battery.

The alternator cable bolts on to one end of the fuse, and the positive battery cable bolts on to the other end. You can test it inline without removing it by checking for continuity across the two bolts. An open circuit indicates that the fuse is blown and needs to be replaced.

If the fuse is blown (which means you have an open circuit), the battery light in the dash should be on.

The car will start normally if the battery has enough of a charge, but it will eventually die when the battery is too depleted to keep the car running, because the alternator can't take over if the current doesn't make it across the blown fuse.

If the battery is dead, it will start with a jump start, but it will die shortly after you remove the jumper cables for the same reason.

This is one of those problems that you might not think of right away, and it will drive you out of your mind. ALWAYS check this fuse before replacing a battery or an alternator on a mid to late '90s Model Thunderbird. You will save time, money, and you won't pull out your hair.

My 89 k5 blazer is taking a jump 2 fire & then drawing ALL the juice from a good gel battery until it dies. is it the alternator ? at first it just wasn't gettin the fuel it needed,she was kinda...


Alternator issue more than likely. I believe the regulator is built in the alternator and the brushes are bad. Brush cnagnge should be considered first. It would only be an $8? fix I believe. It is easy to change brushes if you know what your doing or have a teacher.

Discount brake shop misdiagnosed vibration problem, gouged me.


it seems like the brush guard could have been in place of a frame support cross member by removing it you caused the frame to be able to flex causing you the vibration check to see if there is something that was removed in order for the brush guard to be installed if so you must purchase and reinstall this to stiffen the front end.hope this helps you.

Have a 2000 chevy blazer overnight something kills battery


Yes you need it,it controls lighting and such.What you were told,and what is tested,and diagnosed,is another thing,so ,do this,Unplug the alternator plug in on the alternator,and see if it goes down during the night,if it does not,replace the alternator.The regulator in the alternator could be open.Or a diode in the alternator could be blown.Have the alternator checked on the vehicle at the battery also,the auto parts store will do this for free.
